Today marks the start of an exciting new partnership!
We are working with The Estée Lauder Companies towards a global end to animal testing for cosmetics
Today we are delighted to announce a new collaboration with global cosmetics company The Estée Lauder Companies, one of the world’s leading manufacturers and marketers of skincare, haircare and makeup products, to achieve a worldwide end to animal testing for cosmetics.
The Estée Lauder Companies will support our efforts to encourage leaders to embed cruelty-free consumption and production measures in the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals - a collection of targets set by the UN General Assembly for the year 2030 to achieve a better and more sustainable future.
As a demonstration of their commitment, The Estée Lauder Companies will also be beginning its journey of Leaping Bunny cruelty free certification, starting with the certification of some of its brands.
Anna Klein, Senior Vice President Global Corporate Affairs at The Estée Lauder Companies, said: “Cruelty Free International has been at the forefront of ground-breaking advocacy in the animal testing space with like-minded partners globally. We are very proud to collaborate with them on their tireless commitment to sustainable cruelty-free beauty,”
Cruelty Free International Chief Executive, Michelle Thew, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with such an important respected global beauty company to help bring animal testing for cosmetics to an end. Consumers expect brands to be leaders for positive change which is why genuine engagement from businesses is so important. We hope today’s announcement encourages more cosmetics companies to do the right thing, listen to public demand and make a commitment to ending animal suffering in the cosmetics industry.”
